Zoe Ball discusses her return to BBC Radio 2

Zoe Ball says she will be returning to her BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show after having to wait for her PCR test results.

The 51-year old presenter said that she had her “fingers crossed” that the test will be negative so she can return to the air waves.

Her slot has been covered by TV presenter Nicki Chapman since she’s been awaiting her results.

Looking rosy-cheeked as she appeared to be on a treadmill she wished her 629,000 followers a “Happy New Year,” and added: “Can’t see below the waistline — so tubby.”

She said: “Fingers crossed back to Radio 2 Breakfast Show tomorrow 6.30 if my PCR test is all clear.”

Zoe will be catching up with actress Maxine Peake who stars in ITV’s ‘Anne’ and horticulturist Monty Don.

The mum-of-two recently opened up about the death of her stepdad during a chat with Gabby Logan at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards.

It was the anniversary of his death at the time and she called the day “really special”.

Zoe’s stepdad Rick battled with Motor Neurone Disease and passed away in 2012.

“It’s a real special day in my family today,” she said.

“We lost our stepdad Rick to Motor Neurone Disease on this day, quite a few years back now.”

She said how former Sports Personality of the Year winner Doddie Weir helped to raise over £1million for Doddie Aid which aims to find a cure for the neurological disorder.

“Hopefully one day we will find a cure,” the radio DJ said.

Zoe’s biological dad was a regular on children’s tv throughout the mid 1970s to 1980s and split from her mum when Zoe was a toddler.

The presenter recently shared a glimpse into her beautiful countryside home after she gave it a festive makeover in time for Christmas.

Fans were treated to a view of the star’s chic home which she had decorated in purple, silver and teal decorations.

She shares the £1.5million home in Ashdown Forest in Sussex with her partner Michael Reed and her children Woody, 20 and Nelly 11.

She made the move after putting her home in Lewes up for sale last year.

Her son Woody has carved out a name for himself and has made regular appearances on Celebrity Gogglebox and The Circle.

In 2017 the radio star’s partner Billy Yates took his own life following a long battle with depression.

Three years on she said it was “the hardest thing” she’s ever had to deal with.
